CSE Minor

A minor offers an excellent opportunity to deepen your knowledge and broaden your horizon. The minor program in Computational Science and Engineering (CSE) spans several dozen departments and research areas within the Delft University of Technology (TU Delft). These departments are housed in the TU Delft Institute for Computational Science and Engineering (DCSE) which involve six different faculties, about thirty research groups and more than one hundred faculty members are connected to, and actively involved in DCSE and its activities. Over 200 PhD students perform research related to computational science. CSE is a multidisciplinary application-driven field that deals with the development and application of computational models and simulations. Often coupled with high-performance computing to solve complex physical problems arising in engineering analysis and design (computational engineering) as well as natural phenomena (computational science). CSE has been described as the "third mode of discovery" (next to theory and experimentation). In many fields, computer simulation, development of problem-solving methodologies and robust numerical tools are integral and therefore essential to business and research. Computer simulations provide the capability to enter fields that are either inaccessible to traditional experimentation or where carrying out traditional empirical inquiries is prohibitively expensive.
